Bulk Update for Ref Apps
You can now update the Ref App fields using the Bulk Actions feature in all the CRM Apps. This feature is now available in this release. The updated piece of information gets updated in the Parent App too and vice versa. This feature is currently available in the below CRM Apps: Cases, Contacts, Customers, Leads, Opportunities, and Work Orders.
Let’s consider the Customers App. For easier identification, the custom Ref App field is left as the Reference App 3. You can find the update for the Ref App available in the screenshot.
Auto-Update of information in Ref App field
A note-worthy implementation of this release is the auto-update feature for the Ref App fields. Say, for example, if you update the Parent App, you can find the information being updated in the Ref App fields too.
Let us consider the Leads App, you can find the referral name as Lucy Matthew.
The Ref App field here is the “Referred By” which takes up the reference from the Employees App. If the First Name of the employee is changed to Lucy Paul, the same reflects in the Leads App too.
Enhanced Advanced Search
You can find the Advanced Search feature being enhanced with the facility to search with the “Created By” and the “Modified By” fields. This allows you to search based on the Sales Rep. For instance, let us consider the Customers App.

Increased top stages in Win Analysis
You can find that the top stages from where the Win occurs in the Win Analysis Report are increased to 100 from a default value of 25. You can now, use this enhanced feature to view the stages that bring in the maximum win along with the respective amount earned from them using the Win Analysis Report in the Opportunities App.
